The production contract, totaling USD 30 million, will deliver ELM-2084 Multi-Mission Radars (MMR), a vital component to the Iron Dome air defence system.
“The need for homeland survivability and missile defense is critical now more than ever,” said Joe Adams, President and CEO of ELTA North America. “For the first time, this battle proven air defense radar system will be produced in the United States, leveraging our existing manufacturing and integration capability.”
ELTA North America is a global leader in the design, manufacturing, and support of innovative electronic systems for the United States government.
The ELM-2084 MMR is a mobile S-Band radar featuring an advanced 4D Active Electronically Steered Array (AESA) for Air Defense, Surveillance and Artillery Weapon Location (WLR) missions. The MMR is the radar sensor of the combat proven Iron Dome.
The MMR integrates active and passive sensors delivering higher quality Air Situation Picture (ASP) and weapons support under target saturated, background clutter and severe environmental conditions. The MS-MMR is a single-platform system using multi-band sensing, and a multi spectral sensor suite including an additional higher band radar, IFF, SIGINT, EO/IR, and Launch Detection Sensors (LDS) providing enhanced detection, classification, identification and tracking of all aerial threats. In addition, the system performs cross queuing between the passive and active sensors thereby improving overall performance.
